Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:

Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?

This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.

Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.

Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.

Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.

For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.

That’s really shitty but you know what? This is probably the steps they felt they needed to take to try and fight against piracy. While sure, plenty of people will still be able to pirate and use their older versions of products, I am sure it will be much harder for people to get ahold of new things if they put something like this in place.

Is it necessarily the best way to go about it? Not at all. But it is probably the best that they could come up with, even if the monthly fee is very steep.


I think a better solution for artists out there is to find other programs to use. For creating digital art, there are other programs out there than Photoshop and Illustrator! I’ve never used Adobe Flash myself, but I’m sure it has it’s own alternatives, too. Ones that are cheaper, heck, even some of them are for free. Maybe they might not be as good as what you’re used to getting from Adobe, but it sure does beat trying to pay $50 a month just to use their software.


So yeah, I’m all for signing petitions and all, but sometimes they’re not enough. So I think boycotting Adobe products might also help get the message across that paying that much per month to use some software is ridiculous.

The problem is the graphic design/film/animation industries mostly use Adobe software, as well as schools, and clients. Finding new software to use is a solution, but it’s a hard one to use due to the demand to use Adobe software.

Just to quickly update, the server for the petition is down (how ironic is that). Still, continue to pass this word around, let others know about the petition and the stakes for artists everywhere!
